@ all my social studies friends! This infographic highlights the 3 main branches of the U.S. Government in a simple, easy-to-read format. For my civics guys at school...
Terrific infographic on our government - who takes care of what? Because most kids have no idea.
Using Infographics to Teach Informational Text - 3 branches of government?
This is a great tool for students to use to better understand our government on a basic level. Educating students about politics at a young age is essential to them becoming more involved in their communities - Luke Knoble #ECE #Social Studies

This is a WONDERFUL authentic and accurate Thanksgiving activity for kids to learn about real people at the first Thanksgiving through an interactive website. This website could be used during a lesson about Thanksgiving. It will aid in globalizing elementary classrooms because it gives the perspective and true story about both sides of the feast that took place and lets students take the role of a historian. This site could be used as an enrichment and interactive activity.
Interactive Plimoth website. Great way to incorporate primary sources into Social Studies curriculum.

creating timelines for students. perhaps it can be a collective assignment. as we go through a time period i can ask students to ad to the timeline important facts, dates, events, that way its more interactive. could assign groups of students particular years in a decade and have them find pictures/information to create their section of the timeline. would be a good start or finish to a unit
love the timeline bb - use for 3rd social studies

I wasn't sure whether to pin this to the Kids Books or Homeschool Resource boards, so I'll stick it in both. These books have been a huge hit in our house, and my son can't wait to brief his friends on the latest finds in history, or go grab more books from the library after reading one of these.

So You Want to Be President? by Judith St. George, illustrated by David Small - 2001 Caldecott Medal Winner
Biography by Judith St. George and David Small -This is a wonderful book that includes fun information about all 44 presidents. It is a really informative and easy book to read. It is written very kid-friendly and the illustrations are beautiful. After having read the book, I would have my students each choose a different president to research and present information on. I would use this book for grades 2nd-6th.
